Join our awesome partners and become a Member of the Department of Public Transformation!

Do you believe in the power of stories to connect across divides? The Department of Public Transformation has completed the first Research Road Trip, but the work continues. The Department continues to expand and adapt to find new ways to tell stories, share knowledge and understanding, and connect artists all over the country. What started as a road trip has turned into an ongoing artist inquiry and rich national network of rural makers, movers, and shakers.

We need your help to keep the journey going. If you would like to show your support for this project, you can contribute via our Indiegogo Campaign. A contribution of ANY amount will make you an official member of the Department of Public Transformation.

We are so thrilled that Springboard for the ArtsCreative ExchangeArt of the Rural, and additional rural practitioners have joined us as project partners. In addition to sharing our findings along the way on their national platforms, our partners have also contributed financial and in-kind support. Check out a short video from our partners about their support of Public Transformation here:

So, climb aboard the little yellow school bus, become a member of the Department of Public Transformation, and let’s hit the road!
